British woman killed after being hit by motorcycle

LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said the woman killed after being hit by a motorcycle Wednesday morning is 64-year-old Florence Comicho of London, England.

Comicho's mother told officials she last saw her daughter leave her home in running gear and believed she was going out for a jog.

Comicho was reportedly walking across Highway 90 near Island View Drive around 7 a.m. before she was struck by the motorcycle. Hargrove said the motorcyclist was on the eastbound lane.

The motorcyclist is in critical condition and was first transported to Memorial Hospital, but is being transported to USA Medical Center in Mobile, AL. Hargrove said Comicho was in Long Beach visiting family.
